Thomas Bunbury held two townlands in the parish and barony of Moycullen, county Galway, at the time of Griffith's Valuation and lived in the Manor House. In the 1870s Mrs Bunbury owned 954 acres in county Galway. The Bunburys may have been associated with the Bunbury family of Moyle, county Carlow and the Barons Rathdonnell.
